A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that's assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have numerous sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with anybody else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you would like to encode the info exchanged between the site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
With a shared hosting
account on our cloud platform, you're able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you get it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server
account through our company, you will have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It takes a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IP addresses that you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you won't have to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you can run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through us or any place else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the packages come with, you'll be able to get additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
